Google Earth Panoramic Sphere – St Mawes Castle, Cornwall

Another in the series of kmz files utilising our Google Earth Panorama Viewer. The movie below features a panorama of St Mawes Castle in Cornwall (UK) by Evolve.

Music – IML Perfect Day.

The castle is one of the best preserved and most elaborately decorated of Henry VIII’s coastal fortresses, St Mawes was built to counter invasion threats from France and Spain. The clover-leaf shaped fort fell easily to landward attack by Parliamentarian forces in 1646, and was not properly refortified until the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

Take a look at the Evolve site for the KMZ file of St Mawes as well as Worcestershire Beacon.

    Thanks for the link Andy, but also thanks for the technique. I find it’s an excellent way to display a pano in context – I really should use it more!
